Your Heart Desires Good Things…or does it?

September 2, 2011

What humanists disguised as Christians say

What your heart most dearly and deeply desires is the very thing God wants for you.

What the Bible says 

Genesis 6:5 – The Lord saw how great man’s wickedness on the earth had become and that every inclination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil all the time.

Jeremiah 17:9 – The heart is deceitful above all things and beyond cure.

Matthew 15:19 – For out of the heart come evil thoughts, murder, adultery, sexual immorality, theft, false testimony, slander.

But…

Psalm 37:4 – Delight yourself in the Lord and he will give you the desires of your heart.

How easy it is to slip into the humanist error of believing that our heart will desire good things apart from finding it’s only true delight in the Lord! Praise Jesus for dying for our wicked, perverse, non-delighting hearts so that every so often we might desire something approaching what God wants for us.
